I've stolen this post to add in threads that posters think might be useful. Other mods can add to it as well, so if you see a thread you think should be memorialized, let a mod know and maybe we'll throw it in here.

I was actually thinking of doing the same thing seeing your link from the other post. Great idea man! You may want to include this too even though it has been stickied in the other forum

viewtopic.php?f=1&t=150681

And, you should ask a mod to sticky this (well, you may already have).

Not threads, but useful information for debates that come up on TLS.

LSAC data on repeat LSAT performance
Performance on the LSAT by race, gender, region.
J.D. Enrollment by Gender (LinkRemoved)
Law degrees awarded by year (LinkRemoved)
Actually, the ABA statistics clearinghouse is useful so I'll just post the main link here: http://www.americanbar.org/groups/legal ... stics.html

I will shamelessly derive much value from this thread while contributing absolutely nothing.

Probably wanna find a better method of sorting (e.g. employment data, school data, LSAT statistics, etc, etc). I also think that you should just mix and match the TLS/non-TLS links. I can do it later tonight if you want.

Agreed. I'll probably try and do it by topic (ie: choosing a school, admissions, legal employment, etc.). If you want to sort it, go for it.

Sure. I'll get to it tonight or tomorrow around midday. I'll probably also anal-retentively edit the titles for uniformity and clarity.

Perfect. I'll give you credit in the OP of course for helping out.

Employment Information

School Information

Tips for Students

Tips for Applicants

LSAT Information

Miscellaneous Information



Considering Deletion - Nothing against them but their data is either an awkward compilation, outdated, subject to change, obviated by another thread/link, etc
NLJ250 firms+fed clerkships: % grads w/ good jobs by school - There is a thread that already combines 2009 NLJ with 2009 Clerkship data and I'm just not a fan of combining the average of clerkship data from prior years with the current year's NLJ data.
Cost of Attendance for Top 54 Schools - This data is already outdated and changes pretty much every year. Do not like. (A more useful link would compile a list of links to the current CoA for each school.)
List of deposit deadlines and admitted student weekends - Same as above. Deposit deadlines may not change but ASW's do. I get that they are around the same general time but I feel like this jus clutters everything.
Top Schools for Wanderers - I don't find this to be very helpful since it doesn't actually give any useful information for choosing a school.
JD Enrollment by Gender (ABA) (LinkRemoved) - These can be found on the ABA page that is linked
JDs Awarded by Year (ABA) (LinkRemoved) - These can be found on the ABA page that is linked.

I don't know if this is right for this thread, but I've seen people link this list of overviews of practice areas before and I thought it was really useful. Up to you!
